Network Cable Products

Previously, concerning weld lines from other companies, the yard’s harsh environment along with shipboard operations caused downtime. Since selecting TPC, our cost has decreased, quality has improved, and our welders are pleased with the durability of the welding and arc lines.

Trex-Onics® DeviceNet™ Flex-Net "Thin" High Performance Cable

Flex-Net Cable is designed to meet the electrical requirements identified by the Open DeviceNet Association (ODVA) for the “Thin Cable”. The heavy-duty ultra-shield construction is a combination of two shielding technologies that provides both mechanical strength and 100% shielding protection from EMI and RF interference. The heavy-duty jacket provides excellent defense against cutting, abrasion, oil and chemicals, and is also flame and heat resistance. Flex-Net Cable meets the performance requirements as specified by ODVA with a capacitance between conductors – 12 pF/foot at 1 MHz (nominal), capacitance between one conductor and other conductor connected to shield is 24 pF/foot (nominal), impedance of 120 Ohms +/- 10% at 1 MHz, and propagation delay of 1.36 nSec/foot (maximum). Flex-Net Cable is available as a “Thin or Drop Cable” high-performance design.

  • FT-4 Flame Rating
  • ODVA Conformity
  • RoHS Compliant
  • 300 V
  • Max Conductor Temperature 80°C


Features

  • ELECTRONICALLY TESTED — Meets the performance requirements as specified by ODVA™.

  • ULTRA-SHIELD CONSTRUCTION, A HEAVY-DUTY COMBINATION OF TINNED COPPER SHIELD AND AN ALUMINUM/POLYESTER FOIL SHIELD — 100% shielding provides protection from EM and RF interference. Finely stranded spiral braid provides superior mechanical strength.

  • HEAVY-DUTY GRAY TREX-ONICS® TPE JACKET — Excellent defense against cutting, abrasion, oil and chemicals. Flame and heat resistant. All-weather flexibility.

  • TINNED COPPER CONDUCTORS — Resists corrosion. Easier to solder.

  • DRAIN WIRE — Drain wire with each pair to protect against interference.

  • FLUOROPOLYMER TAPE WRAP — Allows the braid and conductors to move more freely within the jacket. Improves performance in high flex torsional applications.

  • WOVEN NYLON TAPE — Improves flexibility allowing conductor bundle to move easily within the jacket. Protects inner conductor bundle from spiral braid.

  • 4 MILLION — Flex tested to over 4,000,000 cycles without electrical failure.
